BY CLICKING ACCEPT, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE TERMS IN THIS AGREEMENT. Customer and Heat Exchanger Plates.com agree that this Agreement along with Customer’s order for the Services (“Order”) is effective on the date Customer orders the Services by clicking the “Accept” button as part of the ordering process, and accepts these terms. If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to commit the entity to the Agreement and the term “Customer” or “you” will refer to that entity.

Section 1: This section is an attempt by our legal team to shorten the [already excruciatingly] long agreement by pre-defining some terms and then using them throughout the rest of the document.
In addition to the terms otherwise defined in this Agreement or an Order, the following terms have the definitions below:
1.1. “Customer Data” means any content, data, information or material that is recorded by, submitted to or stored by, the Services, including, but not limited to, Personal Data.

1.3 “Sensitive Data” means any information that: (a) requires a high degree of protection by law and where loss or unauthorized disclosure would require notification by Customer to government agencies, individuals or law enforcement, (b) any information that, if made public, could expose individuals to a risk of physical harm, fraud, or identity theft. Sensitive Data includes, but is not limited to, social security numbers or other government-issued identification numbers, financial account numbers, credit card or debit card numbers, CVVs, credit report information or other personal financial information, health or medical information or other information that is subject to international, federal, state, or local laws or ordinances now or hereafter enacted regarding data protection or privacy, including, but not limited to, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act

Users may include Customer’s employees, consultants, contractors and agents or third parties with which Customer transacts business.
Section 2: This section lets you know that you don’t own Heat Exchanger Plates.com. Your subscription just gives you the right to use it while you’re a customer.
2. License Grant.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Order, for the length of the term set forth in the applicable Order, Heat Exchanger Plates.com grants Customer, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable (except as set out in Section 17 below), worldwide, limited right to access and use the Services (as such Services may be modified, revised and updated in accordance with this Agreement) for collecting and analyzing web data on Customer’s site(s) and/or native applications, for Customer’s own internal business purpose.
Section 3: This section explains how we really, really don’t want you to send us sensitive, personal information. If you do so by accident, please let us know so we can help make it right!
3. Customer Data.
Section 4: This section addresses confidentiality. We’ve all got confidential information as part of running a business. Please don’t share ours. We absolutely won’t share yours.
4.1. Confidential Information. Each party (the “Receiving Party”) understands that the other party (the “Disclosing Party”) has business, technical or financial information relating to Disclosing Party’s business which it has disclosed or may disclose during this Agreement (“Confidential Information”). Heat Exchanger Plates.com’s Confidential Information includes non-public information regarding features, functionality and performance of the Services, as well as all user-visible aspects of the Services. Customer’s Confidential Information includes information provided by Customer to Heat Exchanger Plates.com to enable the provision of the Services as well as all Customer Data. The terms and conditions of this Agreement, including all pricing and related metrics, are each party’s Confidential Information.
4.2. Non-Use. Receiving Party agrees that it will take reasonable measures to protect the secrecy of and avoid disclosure and unauthorized use of the Confidential Information of Disclosing Party. Without limiting the foregoing, Receiving Party will take at least those measures that it takes to protect its own most important confidential information. Receiving Party agrees (i) not to use any Confidential Information of Disclosing Party for any purpose except to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under this Agreement and (ii) not to disclose any Confidential Information of Receiving Party to third parties or to such party’s employees, officers, agents, contractors or other representatives (“Personnel”), except to those Personnel of Receiving Party who need or have access to such Confidential Information in order to perform works in connection with this Agreement and are subject to confidentiality obligations consistent with those of this Agreement.
4.3. Exceptions. Disclosing Party agrees that these confidentiality obligations will not apply to any information that Receiving Party can document (a) is or becomes generally available to the public; (b) was in its possession or known by it prior to receipt from Disclosing Party; (c) was rightfully disclosed to it without restriction by a third party; and/or (d) was independently developed without use of any Confidential Information of Disclosing Party. Nothing in this Section 4 precludes either party from disclosing the other party’s Confidential Information as required by law or a legal process, provided that such party (a) gives the other party prior written notice sufficient to permit the other party to contest the disclosure or seek a protective order (or other confidential treatment) and (b) reasonably cooperates with the other party in limiting the disclosure. In addition, a party may disclose information concerning this Agreement and the transactions contemplated under this Agreement, including providing a copy of this Agreement, to any or all of the following: (a) potential acquirers, merger partners, investors and their personnel, attorneys, auditors and investment bankers, solely in connection with the due diligence review of such party by persons and provided that the disclosures are made in confidence, (b) the party’s outside accounting firm, or (c) the party’s outside legal counsel.
4.4. Return of Confidential Information. Promptly following the earlier of (i) the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, or (ii) the request of Disclosing Party, Receiving Party will return to Disclosing Party, or destroy all Confidential Information that are in written, electronic or other tangible form (including, without limitation, all written or printed documents, notes, memoranda, email, or computer memory, whether or not prepared by Receiving Party) to the extent containing or summarizing any portion of the Confidential Information, including, without limitation, all copies and extracts of such Confidential Information. In addition, upon the request of Disclosing Party, Receiving Party will certify to Disclosing Party in writing Receiving Party’s and its Personnel’s compliance with its obligations pursuant to this Section 4.
4.5. Equitable Remedies. Receiving Party acknowledges that in the event of a breach of this Section 4 by Receiving Party, substantial injury could result to Disclosing Party and money damages will not be a sufficient remedy for such breach. In the event that Receiving Party engages in, or threatens to engage in any act which violates any provision of this Agreement, Disclosing Party will be entitled, in addition to all other remedies which may be available to it under law, to seek injunctive relief (including, without limitation, temporary restraining orders, or preliminary or permanent injunctions) and specific enforcement of the terms of this Agreement. Disclosing Party will not be required to post a bond or other security in connection with the granting of any such relief.
4.6. Redundancy. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Heat Exchanger Plates.com may retain Confidential Information after termination of this Agreement for such period of time agreed to by Customer and Heat Exchanger Plates.com. To the extent that Heat Exchanger Plates.com is required by law to maintain copies of Confidential Information, Customer Data, or records related to disclosure or handling of Confidential Information, Heat Exchanger Plates.com will be under no obligation to destroy such information. Furthermore, Heat Exchanger Plates.com will be permitted to retain such information, as Heat Exchanger Plates.com reasonably determines necessary to demonstrate to Customer or any regulatory authority, Heat Exchanger Plates.com’s compliance with this Agreement or any applicable law or regulation. At such time as Heat Exchanger Plates.com’s basis for retaining such information ceases to exist, Heat Exchanger Plates.com will destroy such information as set forth above.
Section 5: This section is basically our version of The Golden Rule. If you wouldn’t want us to do it to you, then you probably shouldn’t do it to us. We’ve poured a lot of love and energy into the creation of Heat Exchanger Plates.com, so we’d prefer that you play fair when using our service.

9. Payment of Fees.
9.1. Fees. The Services are offered on a subscription basis and payments can be made via credit card. We will bill your credit card at the time and according to the rates and terms which are published on Heat Exchanger Plates.com’s website from time to time and which are incorporated into the Order.

It is your responsibility to make sure payment details are correct to prevent Service interruption and to allow successful renewal payments. If Customer believes that Heat Exchanger Plates.com has billed Customer incorrectly, Customer must contact Heat Exchanger Plates.com no later than 60 days after the closing date on the first billing statement in which the error or problem appeared, in order to receive an adjustment or credit. Inquiries should be directed to [email protected] Exchanger Plates.com.com. All Fee changes will be made prospectively and any Services that have been pre-purchased will not be affected by the change in Fees. Unless otherwise agreed to by the parties or as set forth on an Order, all Fees for any renewal periods will be based upon Heat Exchanger Plates.com’s then-prevailing rate. Heat Exchanger Plates.com may choose to bill through an invoice, in which case, full payment for invoices issued in any given month must be received by Heat Exchanger Plates.com within 30 days after the mailing date of the invoice (unless otherwise specified on the Order). Unpaid amounts are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection and may result in immediate suspension or termination of Service.
9.2. Taxes. The Fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is responsible for paying all Taxes associated with its purchases under this Agreement and any Order. If Heat Exchanger Plates.com has the legal obligation to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this Section 9, Heat Exchanger Plates.com will invoice Customer and Customer will pay that amount unless Customer provides Heat Exchanger Plates.com with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
9.3. Suspension of Service and Acceleration. If any amount owing by Customer under this or any other Agreement with Heat Exchanger Plates.com is ten (10) or more days overdue, Heat Exchanger Plates.com may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, accelerate Customer’s unpaid fee obligations under such Order so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend any and all services until such amounts are paid in full. Customer will continue to be charged fees during any period of suspension. If Customer or Heat Exchanger Plates.com initiates termination of this Agreement, Customer will be obligated to pay the balance due on Customer’s account. Any use of the Services in violation of the Agreement by Customer that in Heat Exchanger Plates.com’s reasonable judgment threatens the security, integrity or availability of Heat Exchanger Plates.com’s services or that of its other customers, may result in Heat Exchanger Plates.com’s immediately suspending the Services.
Section 10: This section is about equal rights. You can leave us anytime. And although we really don’t expect this will happen, we reserve the right to leave you, too.
10. Term and Termination
10.1. Term. This Agreement will commence on its Effective Date and will remain in effect for the term set forth in the Order (“Initial Term”).

12.2. Procedure for Handling Indemnification Claims. In the event of any Claim, Heat Exchanger Plates.com will give prompt notice of any such Claim to Customer; provided that the failure to provide such notice will not relieve Customer of its obligations unless such failure prejudices Customer’s ability to defend the Claim).

12.3. CUSTOMER (ON ITS OWN BEHALF AND ON BEHALF OF ANY PERSON OR ENTITY AUTHORIZED TO USE THE SERVICES BY CUSTOMER) COVENANTS NOT TO SUE OR MAKE OR ASSERT AGAINST Heat Exchanger Plates.com ANY CLAIM OF INFRINGEMENT OF ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY Heat Exchanger Plates.com UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
Section 13: This section proves that everyone has a limit. Here is ours.
13. Limitation of Liability.
YOU AGREE THAT Heat Exchanger Plates.com’S LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, NO MATTER THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, WILL NOT EXCEED IN THE AGGREGATE THE TOTAL FEES PAID OR OWED BY CUSTOMER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE THEN-CURRENT ORDER OR, IF LESS, THE 12 MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE OF THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM. YOU AGREE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE IN ANY WAY FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY THIRD PARTIES WHO MAY USE OUR SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PEOPLE WHO COMMIT INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT, DEFAMATION, TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE WITH ECONOMIC RELATIONS, OR ANY OTHER ACTIONABLE CONDUCT TOWARDS YOU. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSSES INCURRED AS THE RESULT OF YOUR DECISION TO USE OUR SERVICE. YOU ARE RESPONSIBILITY FOR DETERMINING THE SUITABILITY OF OUR SERVICE FOR YOUR PURPOSES. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAILURE ON THE PART OF A PAYMENT PROCESSOR, INCLUDING YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY, TO DIRECT PAYMENTS TO THE CORRECT DESTINATION, OR ANY ACTIONS ON THEIR PART IN PLACING A HOLD ON YOUR FUNDS.
WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY FAILURE OF THE GOODS OR SERVICES OF OUR COMPANY OR A THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING ANY FAILURES OR DISRUPTIONS, UNTIMELY DELIVERY, SCHEDULED OR UNSCHEDULED, INTENTIONAL OR UNINTENTIONAL, ON OUR WEBSITE WHICH PREVENT ACCESS TO OUR WEBSITE TEMPORARILY OR PERMANENTLY. THE PROVISION OF OUR SERVICE TO YOU IS CONTINGENT ON YOUR AGREEMENT WITH THIS AND ALL OTHER SECTIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
THE PARTIES AGREE THAT IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, COVER, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, NO MATTER HOW CAUSED OR THE THEORY OF LIABILITY, AND WHETHER OR NOT A PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED THAT SUCH DAMAGES ARE POSSIBLE.
For Jurisdictions that do not allow us to limit our liability: Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, if your jurisdiction has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with the above then our liability is limited to the smallest extent possible by law. Specifically, in those jurisdictions not allowed, we do not disclaim liability for: (a) death or personal injury caused by its negligence or that of any of its officers, employees or agents; or (b) fraudulent misrepresentation; or (c) any liability which it is not lawful to exclude either now or in the future.
IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF A JURISDICTION THAT REQUIRES A SPECIFIC STATEMENT REGARDING RELEASE THEN THE FOLLOWING APPLIES. FOR EXAMPLE, CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS MUST, AS A CONDITION OF THIS AGREEMENT, WAIVE THE APPLICABILITY OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH STATES, “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” YOU HEREBY WAIVE THIS SECTION OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY SIMILAR PROVISION IN LAW, REGULATION, OR CODE THAT HAS THE SAME INTENT OR EFFECT AS THE ABOVE RELEASE.
Section 14: This section is for Government entities, ‘cause they are special. Are you one of those? If so, please read this part.
14. Special Terms for Government Customers.
If Customer is a U.S. government entity, Customer agrees that the Heat Exchanger Plates.com Products and any documentation provided by Heat Exchanger Plates.com are deemed to be “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation” pursuant to Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement, codified under Chapter 2 of Title 48, United States Code of Federal Regulations, Section 227.7202, and Federal Acquisition Regulation, codified in Title 48 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Section 12.12.

15. Forum of Dispute.
You agree that any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be heard solely by a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Georgia. Specifically, where the subject matter of a dispute is eligible for it, you agree that any disputes will be heard solely within the lowest court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Georgia (Small Claims Court). If a dispute claims multiple claims and one or more of those claims would be eligible to be heard by the Small Claims Court, you agree not to bring the other claims against us and to instead proceed within the Small Claims Court. If you would be entitled in a dispute to an amount exceeding the monetary jurisdiction of the Small Claims Court, you agree to waive your right to collect any damages in excess of the monetary jurisdiction and instead still bring your claim within the Small Claims Court. You agree that if a dispute is eligible to be heard in Small Claims Court but you would be entitled to an additional or alternative remedy in a higher court, such as injunctive relief, you will waive your right to that remedy and still bring the dispute within the Small Claims Court. If you bring a dispute in a manner other than in accordance with this section, you agree that we may move to have it dismissed, and that you will be responsible for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements in doing so. You agree that the unsuccessful party in any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be responsible for the reimbursement of the successful party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements. If you conduct a chargeback rather than using our Forum of Dispute procedure described above, Heat Exchanger Plates.com will be entitled to recover the full amount of the chargeback, as well as any of its fees, disbursements, or other costs or expenses involved in recovering that amount.

18.6. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the applicable Order and the attachments and schedules attached to this Agreement constitute the entire Agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any and all existing agreements relating to the subject matter hereof. To the extent, there is any conflict among the terms of this Agreement and the applicable Order, such conflict will be governed in the following order: 1) the terms of the Order; and then, 2) this Agreement and any applicable addenda, the terms of which are incorporated into the Order by reference.
18.7. Modification and Waiver. No modification of this Agreement, and no waiver of any breach of this Agreement, will be effective unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the party against whom enforcement is sought. No waiver of any breach of this Agreement, and no course of dealing between the parties, will be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of this Agreement.
18.8. Force Majeure. Neither party will be liable for any failure or delay in the performance of any of their respective obligations (other than confidentiality obligations and payment obligations) if prevented from doing so by a cause or causes beyond its reasonable control (a “Force Majeure Event”). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Force Majeure Events include fires, floods, terrorism, strikes, blackouts, war, restraints of government, utility or communications failures or interruptions, failures of third party vendors, Internet slow-downs or failures, computer hackers or other causes that are beyond a party’s reasonable control. Failure to meet due dates or time schedules resulting from a Force Majeure Event will extend the due dates or time schedules for reasonable periods of time as determined by the parties in good faith.
18.9. Severability. The illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement will not in any manner affect or render illegal, invalid or unenforceable any other provision of this Agreement, and that provision, and this Agreement generally, will be reformed, construed and enforced so as to most nearly give lawful effect to the intent of the parties as expressed in this Agreement.
18.10. Headings. Section headings are for convenience of reference only and will not affect the interpretation of this Agreement.
18.11. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, but which together will constitute one and the same instrument. Electronic execution and delivery of this Agreement is legal, valid and binding execution and delivery for all purposes.
